What Is Workers Compensation NSW?
Workers compensation is a form of insurance that provides support to employees who are injured on the job in various ways. In New South Wales, Australia, the workers compensation system is designed to help employees get the medical treatment and financial support they need while they are unable to work. The Workers Compensation Act may also provide financial support for those suffering psychological injuries from those who are bullied or harassed at work or have suffered a secondary psychological injury after a physical injury.
Workers compensation may provide assistance and support in terms of return to work assistance, compensation of lost wages due to not being able to work due to the workplace injury acquired, medical, hospital or rehabilitative treatment and in specific circumstances, non-economic support may be provided.
In some cases, an employee may be entitled to additional compensation if their injury was caused by the negligence of their employer or another party. If you believe this may be the case for you, it may be necessary to seek the services of a negligence lawyer to understand if this is relevant to your case and what can be achieved for you.
